Just weeks after the US Department of Defense announced that it would be relaxing its policy on the use of portable media devices it has relaxed its policy concerning social networking. Employees using non classified computer systems will be able to access social networking websites such as FaceBook and Twitter. Personal use of these sites must be accompanied by authorization and all official postings are closely monitored.
There is no mention in the source whether or not the DoD has installed any filtering, monitoring or auditing software or systems to ensure that usage is within policy and to protect against release of unauthorized data.
